Cellphone Waste

Smart phones contain materials made from minerals mined around the world. They also contain other materials that come from non-renewable resources. With more and more smartphones in our lives, the environmental impact of making and using them grows. When we replace an old smartphone with a new one, we need to find a way to lower the environmental impact.

There are many precious metals as well as harmful materials used in the manufacture of cellphones, and by disposing mobile phones onto a landfill instead of recycling them, we pose a hazard to the economy and to the environment.
